Dani refuses to lose another parent due to her absence from their life. After pulling herself back together following the death of her father, she moves back to her childhood town to live with her mom. She’s slowly pulled back into the lifestyle she worked so hard to get away from ten years ago. She accepts that this is the life she has always been destined to live. Getting a job at the store down the road and hooking back up with her first love Gage, seems to be the logical way to go…that is until Holden Reynolds shows up in town.
Now that Holden is finally back home from the Navy he plans on following in his father’s footsteps. Still trying to move on from the one woman who had his heart, he busies himself in work and returning to the country boy lifestyle he’s always loved. The best way to get over someone is to get under someone, right? That’s his mindset as he travels town to town with his job perfectly content with being a rambling man…that is until he meets Danielle Brooks.
When Dani isn't leaving and Holden isn't staying will they be able to keep themselves from getting too attached? Or will they be just what each other needs to cut all the strings that have them bound?
“You can’t save me from me, Holden.” –Dani
Review: 4 stars ~by April
This was a good story. I liked this book and don’t want to give too much away. I loved the feeling wonderful aspects.
Dani Brooks is a daddys girl. After he dies 10 years after she leaves home, she quits her life and moves back to his town. She finds it difficult to stay at his home, so she is mentally forced to move back to her hometown with her mother. Her mother is being badly taken advantage of by Dani’s step-sibling addicts.
Dani is determined not to let her mother die due to her not watching after her close enough. She feels if she would have been home her father would still be alive. I love how Dani stands up for herself and her mother. She has some spunk and can back herself up! When he came home her old flame, Gage Beck, thought they would get back together.
Then here comes Holden Reynolds!! I just loved how they met. You have to read it to find out. When Holden left the Navy, he took up working for his father. Due to work he travels all the time. An injury to another worker lands him in town for a while. Since the one he loved had broke his heart, he is not looking for love. Just a little relief. Then he meets Dani.
How will it all work out? How will the Gage/Holden issue go? What team are you rooting for? Read it and find out. There are times you will yell and times you just want to bury yourself in the blankets and drown everybody out so you can see what happens next! I am giving this book 4 stars. Thank you
